it that effort would entail. first is the nuclear question. does iran have any nuclear weapons? the answer from all intelligence sources and from the iaea and the expert community is that it has no nuclear weapons. does it have the capacity to build nuclear weapons? and the answer is yes, it does have the capacity. and that's the dilemma, having the capacity, can you trust monitoring and verification sufficiently to be able to take remedial action if the peaceful path is abandoned and iran goes down the path to acquiring its own nuclear weapons. that's the task that was set before our nation and the npt and all the signatories to the npt are devoted to that task. to prevent proliferation of nuclear weapons and to encourage those nations that have nuclear weapons to reduce their stocks, hopefully to zero. certainly the united states and russia in states of the former soviet union have taken to heart the effort to reduce their weapons stocks. there are far too many in the world and other nations have acquired nuclear weapons and the recent past. israel, pakistan, india. in a volatile middle east.

states and iran, between iran and the western community in general, that is going to have an impact on iran's role in the region. and we are focusing today on iran and its eastern neighbors, specifically afghanistan, pakistan and india. while iran is often considered a middle eastern country, in fact, it's historically its cultural ties are as strong if not stronger with its eastern neighbors, with afghanistan and south asia. and, of course, iran will be a pivotal player as it has been all along in afghanistan, especially next year as the united states and nato began to withdraw all its, some if not all of their forces. we are launching a new issue brief this year that have some recommendations for u.s. policy. including a bigger role helping afghanistan manage its water resources, which is a key issue for iran as a downstream neighbor. and the united states can contribute to resolving other regional problems such as energy shortages, ethnic conflict, and drug trafficking. this would have enormous benefit not just for iran but for afghanistan, pakistan, india. indeed, the united sta

. secretary william hague. >> i would make a statement on our negotiations with iran. i explained then that iran was to produce a first step agreement. we could create the confidence for a comprehensive settlement, addressing all concerns about the nuclear program. we have always been clear that because iran's program is so extensive and crucial aspects have been concealed in the past, any agreement would have to be detailed and give assurance to the whole world that the price would be properly addressed. we believe that such a deal was on the table. we would do our utmost to bridge the narrow gap between the party and conclude a strong agreement. on wednesday last week, the iranian negotiations resumed their work in geneva. on saturday morning, i joined the talks. at 4:00 yesterday, we concluded the negotiations successfully. we agreed on a first stage agreement, which is a significant step toward enhancing the security of the middle east and preventing nuclear proliferation worldwide. in this statement, i will cover the extensive commitments that iran has made and the sanction i

two weeks ago and those this weekend brought forth a great deal of criticism in iran, in the us congress and elsewhere in the world that could easily have fatally complicated the efforts to reach agreement. considering the months of work that need to go into the implementation of this agreement and into attaining a comprehensive and final agreement, it is vital to maintain the momentum all the way. the agreements that the united states has made can all be implemented by executive order. that does not mean that the debates in congress are over. what happens in the us congress is up to the united states. however, the right honorable gentleman can be assured that the united states administration are extremely strongly committed to this process. the leadership and persistence of secretary kerry were crucial in bringing about the agreement and the clarity of president obama on the matter is clear. i do not think that we need, at this point, to start looking at the other scenarios that the right honorable gentleman brought in of acting separately from the united states. >> order. i am

the weekend deal to remove punitive sanctions on iran. we will show you as much of this as we can until live remarks from william hague at 10:30. host: joining us at the table to discuss the nuclear deal is trita parsi. for those were not familiar with your group, who are you and what do you do? guest: it was founded about 10 years ago right after 9/11. it is the largest iranian american grassroots organization. we have been working on this issue for quite some time. we think it needs to be resolved in a peaceful way. we need to also make sure this does not drag into a war. that would be one of the worst obstacles. host: is this deal the way to do that? guest: i think this is a very, very significant breakthrough. now the hard work begins. i think it is important to realize that the vast majority of concessions in this round actually came from the iranian side. the tougher part is going to come in the second phase because that is when it is going to be required all sanctions to be lifted on iran. sanctions on capitol hill the to be lifted. that has not happened and 34 years. that will be a t
, we will start with jim phillips. >> thanks, steve. the interim nuclear agreement with iran announced last weekend has been called historic, but it remains to be seen whether it is historically bad that fails to halt the drive for nuclear starts or if it's a bad that will need much firmer aessure on iran to salvage sustainable agreement. i think the final answer will not be known for at least six months but i'm afraid it's almost certain that the results will be closer to the former than the latter. it should be noted this is not the first time that iran has not reached a so called historic agreement to monitor the nuclear program. britain, france, and germany thought they had a historic agreement in 2003 when iran agreed to suspend enrichment temporarily and enter negotiations. unfortunately, those negotiations went nowhere and they eventually drop the faÇade of negotiations two years later when it was in their interest to do so. it is called a first step agreement and is clearly more a step towards a nuclear iran than of progress.tep unlike the earlier agreement, the does not enric

for you today starting with the iran nuclear talks in geneva. we have reporters and experts to help make sense of it all. then we'll take you to mars. one of the world's most innovative minds says we need to get there. elon musk. >> what the heck is going on? >> first, here's my take. if you're trying to decide what to think about the deal struck between the major powers in iran, here's a suggestion. imagine what would have happened had there been no deal? in fact, one doesn't have to use much imagination. in 2003, iran approached the united states with an offer to talk about its nuclear program. the bush administration rejected the offer because it believed that the iranian regime was weak, battered by sanctions and would either capitulate or collapse if washington just stayed tough. so there was no deal. what was the result? iran had 164 centrifuges operating in 2003. today it has 19,000. had the geneva talks with iran broken down, iran would have continued expanding their nuclear program. despite all of the sanctions, keep in mind the cost of a nuclear program are small for an oil ric

. together now we need to set about theof proving to the world what iran has said many times. that its program is peaceful. with this first step we have created time and the space in order to be able to pursue a o comprehensive agreement that would finish the work that president obama began on the very first day in office. that is to ensure that iran does not obtain a nuclear weapon. president obama worked intensively and his administration worked intensively before i even came in when i was in the congress and voted for sanctions. the president worked to put in place a significant sanctions regime, an unprecedented regime. he worked with countries around the world in order to ensure broad participation and support for these sanctions. we believe it's the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation and ultimately to the more significant negotiation to follow for a comprehensive agreement. make no mistakes, and i ask you, don't interpret that the sanctions were an end unto themselves. the goal was to always to have a negotiation. that is precisely what is now taking place and tha
